Bickford of Chesapeake

Your loved one deserves to live the best life possible

Watch your loved one thrive in an environment that feels like home

Navigating the aging journey is difficult.

We understand what’s at stake here: it’s not just someone, it’s your loved one.

Meanwhile, it’s on you to make the difficult decisions.

There's a Higher Path for our seniors

Senior care today is reactive, expensive, and siloed. It’s a sick-care system, not a health-care system (designed to keep seniors healthy). Most of us have accepted this status quo because it feels too big and complex to change. Not us. We’re taking the road less traveled and championing a higher standard of senior care.

A great way for seniors with memory challenges to work on their cognition is to observe the world around them. This allows them to pick up on patterns and visual cues, as well as improve their memory. Bird watching is a great way to get seniors out of their comfort zone and engage with positive brain activities. At Bickford of Chesapeake our resident Pam is leading the birding and she is the one took all the pictures. Bickford of Chesapeake Assisted Living and Memory Care

Ice cream truck: Ice cream is often high in calcium (to strengthen bones) and other essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, vitamin A, calcium, phosphorus and riboflavin. When paired with berries and dark chocolate seniors can also reap additional health benefits. Bickford of Chesapeake Assisted Living and Memory Care

Outing to River Oak Church: Some studies have found that older adults who are deeply religious and use religious coping mechanisms are less likely to suffer from depression and anxiety and have a greater sense of mental health than those who are not religious. At Bickford of Chesapeake we offer residents opportunities for church visits. Bickford of Chesapeake Assisted Living and Memory Care

    New staff is being added everyday and it's hard on them to be sure if doing the little things that need to be done. They are stretched very thin. When your activities director can't do activities because she's driving the bus to medical appointments...that's a problem. Also we have to wait two or three days into the new month for the newsletter with schedules and menus. This makes it hard to plan.

    Love the Bickford of Chesapeake just wish they had someone there that answers the phone quicker when you call there.

    I am very concerned about the staffing issues that seem to continue but also thankful for the management's efforts to assist staff. Have you considered using travel agency staff, at least until staffing stabilizes? I am disappointed in the lack of consideration of my Dad's isolation and need for social interaction. The nsg assistants are very busy and I do understand that they do not have time just to sit with him and chat. When I asked about what could be done, I was told that the focus was supposed to be on the large group community activities and not for individuals. Really? Considering that we also paid the activity fee, it seems only right that more effort should be made to provide one-on-one interaction with Dad and to consider his unique needs. I am sure he's not the only one in this situation.

    The past few weeks have been a challenge because of Covid, but I would like to commend the staff on their hard work in containing this and helping the residents who contracted it. I would like to compliment the Director (name removed) for her efforts and for being there as needed to help out the residents and the staff members. I would like to compliment, nurses (names removed) for their help with not only my dad, but with the other residents who needed assistance during this challenging time. Lastly I would like to commend the staff for trying their best to keep up the level of care despite the challenges of staffing and quarantine, etc. Thank you.

    5 the facility has done a good job with managing the challenges of multiple Covid cases. (name removed) has done an amazing job with creating creative game opportunities for those residents confined to their rooms.

    (name removed) has been amazingly responsive. Our mom is having trouble adjusting to life at Bickford after coming from an independent living facility and knowing/remembering who to reach out to when she needs something

    (Name Removed) is definitely the heart of Bickford
